Nevada gasoline prices drop 15 cents in one month

Nevadans are seeing big relief at the gasoline pumps, with prices falling an average 15 cents over the past month.

AAA Nevada says the average statewide cost for a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.35, down 34 cents from this time last year.

Industry analysts on Tuesday credited a light hurricane season, less consumer demand and completion of winter blend conversion for the price declines.

The average price nationally fell to $3.18.

Elko has the highest gasoline prices in Nevada, averaging $3.65 per gallon. The cheapest gasoline at $3.26 is in Southern Nevada.

In Northern Nevada the average price has dropped 20 cents over the past month to around $3.54.

AAA says it expects the downward price trend to continue to the end of the year, barring any unforeseen events.
